It was Brooks Robinson's night at the ballpark so, as Showalter said, "We had a lot of pressure on us."
This year's six sculpture unveiling ceremonies, held to honor each of the Orioles' Hall of Famers for the 20th anniversary of Camden Yards, were clearly a home run for the fans. And it seemed like they were just as much of a hit in the O's clubhouse."We get to see the legends out there, and it's unbelievable," said first baseman Mark Reynolds, who admitted to getting Robinson to autograph a ball for him Saturday. "I went out there to see Brooks today, and I had chill bumps the whole time hearing people talk about him and what a great guy he was.
"It was a fun night."
It was also a successful one, as the Orioles improved to 4-2 in the games following those sculpture ceremonies.
Sure, that's a meaningless stat, but with the playoff race as it stands, every one of those wins counts.
